Acknowledgement of Country and Traditional Owners


We recognise all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples as the First Nations of the lands now known as Australia. We acknowledge the people of the Wadawurrung, Woiwurrung and Boonwurrung languages in the Kulin Nation as the First Custodians of these grasslands, waterways and basalt plains.

For tens of thousands of years, the Werribee River has been a significant meeting place for a diversity of Aboriginal people to build community, exchange resources, and share responsibility for its lands. We pay respect to the wisdom of Ancestors and resilience of Elders, past and present. We recognise the ongoing impacts of colonisation for generations of Aboriginal people and this land. We commit ourselves to learning and working together to determine a better future, grounded in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander ways of caring for the whole earth community.
